Paint marks on Coil springs

Post by Trotbags »

Reaching out to the brains-trust - does anyone have a breakdown of the colour codes on factory SW20 coil springs? I'm sure I've seen one before but now can't find it anywhere.

I ask because my yellow 91 GT had the suspension reconditioned before I got it and it sits about 30mm too high on all 4 corners compared to my other SW20s. At first glance the struts seem the same so I'm thinking the springs could be wrong. I have a couple of spare sets of springs.

Or, what else could affect ride height? It came with 16" wheels and I've put 15" on but no real change.

Any insights appreciated.
